How Do I Know If I Need Eyelid Surgery?
There are many reasons to have eyelid surgery. While a growth that interferes with vision is an obvious one, a blepharoplasty might be performed to reduce the signs of aging, improve looks, or, in the case of excessively drooping eyelids, to increase the range of peripheral vision.
You might consider the procedure if you have:
- Baggy or droopy upper eyelids
- Bags beneath the eyes
- Excess skin on the lower lids
- The folds on your upper lids sag into your field of vision
- Excessive puffiness and wrinkles below the eyes
Some people develop bags beneath the eyes during young adulthood—even before any signs of skin aging. In some cases, a surgeon might recommend an eyebrow lift in conjunction with (or instead of) eyelid surgery.
